A year in review!

A year ago today I was at St. Mary's College and my name was called as I walked across the stage in a blue cap and gown.. Time really does fly. It's been a year to say the least but wow I have come so far. I am grateful for the memories my senior year holds, but most of all I'm grateful for how the Lord has grown me in this year of transition into a new phase of life.
I cannot even begin to describe the emotions I felt on the day of my high school graduation. Thirteen years of my life had led me to this moment and within 6 seconds of walking across the stage, hearing my name, and shaking a few hands, the moment would be over. I'd officially be a high school graduate. The next phase would begin. I was nervous, excited and unsure of what the next year would hold. My family would be picking up our "comfortable" lives in Maryland to move half way across the country to the great state of Texas.
Moving to Texas was the best thing that could have happened to me. My plan A out of high school was to attend Texas A & M and major in Marketing with a minor in Communications. In March of my senior year I received a letter stating I was accepted into a program called the Program for System Admissions. I would attend a sister school, maintain a 3.0 GPA, complete 24 credit hours and be guaranteed admission my sophomore year.  It definitely wasn't what I was hoping for, but A & M was a part of my plan so I was going to do whatever it took to get there. I chose the school Texas A & M--Commerce in East Texas, previously named East Texas State University. It was definitely not what I expected, but without this past year I wouldn't be able to appreciate little things in my life and know the real meaning of perseverance. After a long freshman year, I am grateful to announce I will be attending A & M in the fall. I will be in the college of Agriculture with an undecided major, hopefully I'll have that figured out by the end of the weekend. :) God is good and I'm so grateful for this past year and how I can look back on it. As a new year begins, "An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves."

Cheers to new beginnings and appreciating the memories of old ones!

The beautiful A & M campus, my home for the next 3 years!
